I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4 doors (sweet!!!). I hooked up the Radar Detector on the plastic trim above the windshield. I want to run a wire (inside the trimmings) to connect to the cigarette lighter wires so I dont have to have the wires hanging on the outside. I assume I need to disassemble the dash, but I have no idea how. Can you help? Or, do you have a better idea?
1. Run the wire around the windshield frame, down the side of the dash, and across the footwell until it reaches the center console section.
2. Remove the top panel of the dash stack by prying up on the back edge until it pops free. There are two clips in the back corners, and it will roll off toward the front.
3. There are a couple of bolts that hold the front bezel in. Remove them, and then gently pry the rest of the bezel off -- there are 4-6 more clips like the ones from the dash top panel holding it in place.
4. Find the gray wire with the orange stripe running to the lefthand cigarette lighter. This is ignition switched power. Tap the radar detector leads into that wire. This will cause the detector to come on when you turn the ignition on, and off when the ignition is off.
5. Close everything back up. You're done!

Many Wrangler JK's have lift, but few people extend their brake lines. This is particularly important for Rubicon models. The Rubicons are capable of insane wheel travel, by stretching the wheel travel further (lifted?) you could exceed the length of the feeble factory brake lines. Crown manufactures brake line extensions for Wranglers, specifically for lifts.
I have a 2007 Unlimited and has the same problem. My Jeep is a soft top and the water came from the rain and a poor seal of the back window. Part of the problem came from the displacement of the plastic "c" shaped "rear window bar holder" that clips on to the rear on either side of rear window. Ocasionally the clip pops out of place and breaks the seal between the rubber on the window and the rear sides of the Jeep.
Fuel flow. Either simply, a blocked fuel line (debris / filter / fouled gas) or an electronic issue. Ever let this Jeep run bone dry on gas? Hopefully not, as doing so can draw a lot of crud into your fuel lines from the bottom of the tank. Electronically, if part of the Jeep "brain" has gone bad, there may not be any fuel being routed to the engine. This most likely needs a Jeep mechanic to repair.
Sounds like a short in the electrical system. Maybe even just a loose ground wire. On the other hand...It could just as easily be a bad ECM (BRAIN)! Warranty still in tact? I hope so. Diagnostic at a certified Jeep shop... Good Luck!
I am Having the same problem with a 2005 wrangler rubicon unlimited and when I step on the brake some dash lights come on including one with a circle slash over a key on the top left of the dash!
I called the dealer and they told me to bring it in because the Vallet computer lost its memory code, I think its strange since I do not have an alarm
